Travel Tips

gettingThere

Taman Negara is accessible via Jerantut which is the main entry point to the Park. You will have to take either private or public transport from Kuala Lumpur or Kuantan, and it takes approximately 3 to 4 hours from these points to Jerantut. Taxi and bus services regularly ply this route from the Kuantan main bus terminal, or the Pekeliling Bus Station. From Jerantut, a 16-kilometre ride in a bus or taxi brings you to Kuala Tembeling. From here, simply follow the signs to Taman Negara. From Singapore, a night train brings you right to Tembeling Halt, and from here you can walk to the jetty, which is about half an hour away. From the Tembeling Halt Jetty, the Park’s headquarters at Kuala Tahan is a 2.5 or 3.5 ride up the Tembeling River. This boat ride may cost between RM 35 to RM 150, depending on the number of passengers. A word of caution before you begin your Taman Negara adventure - be sure to get all the necessary permits and licenses from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks in Kuala Tembeling Jetty. These are available for a nominal fee. Boats depart from Kuala Tembeling at 9 a.m and 3 p.m daily.
